Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety. Notes: Digging through the long list of NHTSA complaints about a sudden loss of engine power and the high pressure fuel pump failing, it's never good to come across the "my car (with a cold engine) set itself on fire in the middle of the night" complaint.

The latch on the driver side has become loose. As I was driving over speed bumps, I noticed the door would rattle hard. I pulled to the side and noticed the latch attached to the car was loose. I tightened up the screws and the door was able to close tightly again. A few weeks later, the problem has occurred again. I tighten the screws, but this time, the door cannot close fully. This is worrisome, because what if the door swings open as I am driving? this is a major safety concern!
